Not sure about the best time of year?
Probably (European Offseason = February to March?)
Hamburg is not the easiest place to get to.

Frankfurt or Munich are better, even Düsseldorf is better.

Hi,
it may be a good idea to talk/discuss with the guys in the Norwegian casting union. They have many years of experience on arranging indoor events.
Cheers,
Grunde

My guess is you will need at least 75-80 metres of space.

Count me in Bernd.

Hi Bernd

Sounds like a fun idea :)
Like Grunde says, you should have a chat with the Norwegians, they have a 5 weight distance and accuracy event happening indoors about 3-4 times every winter for the last 4 years and before that several different 5 weight comps.

Like Lee says, 80 meters of floorspace minimum, and high enough to the ceiling, minimum 8+ meters, 10 is better and even more if we're talking the 55 gram event :) And if it's a exibition hall/congress center thing, make sure there's no wires hanging down :D

If possible I would be interested.

Cheers
Lasse

No water mate, it's a 100m indoor running track but would allow for OH Salmon. Aberdeen Sports Village.
